Hon. Bright Iyamu, the lawmaker representing Orhionmwon South Constituency in the Edo State House of Assembly, has urged his constituents and supporters to remain calm in the face of provocation following his suspension from the House. He assured them that the issues surrounding his suspension will be resolved soon.

Recall that the Speaker of the House, Hon. Blessing Agbebaku, suspended three members, including Hon. Iyamu, for allegedly plotting to effect a change of leadership. The other suspended members are Hon. Donald Okogbe (PDP, Akoko-Edo II) and Hon. Adeh Isibor (APC, Esan North-East Constituency I).
